Re: Working from home

Barbara Corner <bcorner@...>
 

I often work from home and use the Microsoft remote desktop application.
It is as fast as my work on my computer at work.

The only caveat is that you need to leave the work computer on the log on
screen. If something happens, I just have a co-worker reboot my computer,
the log on screen pops up and I'm in business again.

This application can also work from a server but the server needs to have
JAWS installed.

Which applications do people use with JAWS to work from home? My
student's company is agreeable to her working at home some of the time, but
needs to know which programs will work well enough with JAWS and their
servers to make this possible.

thanks for the input.

Hi,

I work from home 3 days a week and 2 days in the office, I have a laptop set
up at home that connects to my work through a VPN (I believe we use
something called bt global protect for this), I then have access to
everything I need so it's no different from when I'm in the office.

Hope this helps

Another thing that needs to be done is to delete the huge digest from the
email you send. The last one was some 80 pages long, and provided no clue
as to the context of the actual question.

You could copy the portion of the digest you are referring to, and paste
that into a new email, with an appropriate subject line, your question, then

paste in the portion from the digest that prompted your question.

I know this sounds like asking a lot, but once you do this, you will find it

takes only a few seconds, and will vastly improve your chances of getting a
helpful response. Without doing the above, there was simply no way to know
what the author was talking about!

Hi, everyone,



When replying to a digest, please change the subject so that it reflects the
topic of the conversation. As someone on this list noted, many of us decide
whether or not to read a message based on the subject, so if you don't do
this, chances are that people who can offer meaningful responses won't even
look at your posts.



Best Wishes,



Michal

getting connected initially ....

Hello,
The arrow keys had no effect; here is what happens.
I am on my local transit website, make my way to the list of routes using control insert L, make my way to a list containing weekday schedule tab, Sunday schedule tab, and Saturday schedule tab, I press enter to go to the list, press enter on Sunday schedule tab, and Jaws says "To activate tab press space bar", but prior to that I hear the pop for forms mode, and nothing happens when I press the space bar until I press enter which takes me to the appropriate tab; so I guess it is a forms mode issue.
I hope that is a little clearer than mud, lol.

I think that if you press the spacebar on one of the tabs, you can then
navigate left and right across the tabs. You can then go up and down through
the choices under each tab.It's kind of like an old style menu bar. See if
that helps.

Hi,

I don't think we're talking about the same tabs here. I'm talking
about tabs within a web page, not separate web pages opened in
different tabs. Does this make sense? There are some web pages that
seem to be divided into different tabs... our university library's
site is just one. I think Blackboard Learn has different tabs as well.
I'm not sure, but I think the Freedom Scientific website is divided
into tabs. I'm wondering if there is an easy way to navigate these
tabs... hope I'm using the correct term.

Thanks,

Russell

Hi everyone,

Is there a keystroke to bring up a list of tabs on a web page,
something like the list of links or headings? I'm talking about pages
that have tabs within the page itself, not tab browsing.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Russell

Re: google translator?

Kimsan Song <kimsansong@...>
 

hahahah, that's great! I just tried it by typing up some stuff and
inputted it into the field and translated into Spanish and the only
words I understood was school, work, mom and dad.

The next thing I would like and ultimately do is write something up in
English, translate it to Spanish and print it. thoughts?

2 type "translate" into the search field and hit enter
3 hit the letter H to get to the 1st result
And there is the translator with edit fields to input your text and combo
boxes to select the languages. The 2nd combo box is to pick the language you

want to translate to. There is even a "listen" button to have the
translation spoken aloud.

What luck are people having using google translator? I see an option to
translate an entire document. Does anyone have luck with this? Also, if
the translation sucks, what would you recommend to use, if I were to write
up a lengthy letter and would like to translate it into let's say Spanish?

Thanks.

Re: Working from home

Michael Mote
 

I currently work from home using a VPN. This gives me access to the files
that I need on my work's shared drive. As for Tandem, I would say that's a
bad idea. If for whatever reason, the connection is interrupted, someone
from work would have to go to that computer and help you reestablish the
connection. Tandem isn't really designed for that. It might work in a
pinch, but I'm not sure if it would be reliable for an entire work day.

The other issue would be that you likely have to share your login password
with whoever happens to be around, which isn't a great idea. An empty audio
cable in the headphone jack would mute the chatter the work side would hear,
but I'm not sure if you can access Tandem right at the login prompt.

Re: Navigating tabs in a web page

Kevin Hourigan <kevinthourigan@...>
 

Hello,
The arrow keys had no effect; here is what happens.
I am on my local transit website, make my way to the list of routes using control insert L, make my way to a list containing weekday schedule tab, Sunday schedule tab, and Saturday schedule tab, I press enter to go to the list, press enter on Sunday schedule tab, and Jaws says "To activate tab press space bar", but prior to that I hear the pop for forms mode, and nothing happens when I press the space bar until I press enter which takes me to the appropriate tab; so I guess it is a forms mode issue.
I hope that is a little clearer than mud, lol.
Cheers Kevin.

I think that if you press the spacebar on one of the tabs, you can then
navigate left and right across the tabs. You can then go up and down through
the choices under each tab.It's kind of like an old style menu bar. See if
that helps.

Hi,

I don't think we're talking about the same tabs here. I'm talking
about tabs within a web page, not separate web pages opened in
different tabs. Does this make sense? There are some web pages that
seem to be divided into different tabs... our university library's
site is just one. I think Blackboard Learn has different tabs as well.
I'm not sure, but I think the Freedom Scientific website is divided
into tabs. I'm wondering if there is an easy way to navigate these
tabs... hope I'm using the correct term.

Thanks,

Russell

Re: Working from home

Kimber Gardner
 

I'm in .I.T and I use remote desktop. I can use it to access either a
server or the computer on my desk. Either way Jaws has to be installed
on both ends with remote access enabled. The technology isn't perfect
by any measure, but it's a heck of a lot better than it was several
years ago. Citrix is supposed to work too, but I have never had
success with that method.

If you need specifics, either you or your student can contact me
off-list at kimbersinbox1963@....
